  1. 1. Ridged sea ice modelling in climate applications

    University dissertation from Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Sebastian Mårtensson; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arctic ocean; Baltic Sea; sea ice; ice dynamics; numerical modelling; climate; ice deformation; ice compression; physical and biogeochemical interactions; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : This work aims to increase our understanding of the nature of large scale features of sea ice from a dynamics point of view.Sea ice plays an important part in the exchange of heat and humidity between sea and air and thus is an important component of the climate system. READ MORE

  2. 2. Computational Ice Sheet Dynamics Error control and efficiency

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Josefin Ahlkrona; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ice sheet modelling; stokes equations; shallow ice approximation; finite element method; perturbation expansions; non-newtonian fluids; free surface flow; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Ice sheets, such as the Greenland Ice Sheet or Antarctic Ice Sheet, have a fundamental impact on landscape formation, the global climate system, and on sea level rise. The slow, creeping flow of ice can be represented by a non-linear version of the Stokes equations, which treat ice as a non-Newtonian, viscous fluid. READ MORE

  5. 5. Core Level Spectroscopy of Water and Ice

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fysikum

    Author : Dennis Nordlund; Stockholms universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; x-ray adsorption spectroscopy; photoemission spectroscopy; x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy; platinum; x-ray emission spectroscopy; density functional theory; hydrogen-bonded; H-bond; water; ice; electronic structure; excited state dynamics; proton dynamics; water adsorption; liquid water; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik;

    Abstract : A core level spectroscopy study of ice and water is presented in this thesis. Combining a number of experiments and spectrum calculations based on density functional theory, changes in the local valence electronic structure are shown to be sensitive to the local H-bonding configurations.
